About Oral History
Boyd, Thomas H.
Use Restriction Status:
Thomas "Tommy" H. Boyd served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine from March 2010 to December 2012. With a background in youth development programs and teaching, Boyd was part of the 38th group of volunteers to serve in Ukraine and trained with a cluster of five volunteers in Semenivka. The highlight of his training was the opportunity to live with a Ukrainian family. Boyd was the only volunteer stationed in the small town of Rudky. He lived with a grandmother who was an excellent cook. He worked in the Rudkivska Secondary School where he was the only non-Ukrainian on the faculty, and set up creative after-school programs, including a "Candy for Cigarettes" exchange project run by students. Boyd also served as a Peace Corps Response Volunteer from April 2013 until February 2014, when all volunteers were evacuated from the country due to safety concerns. 1 digital audio file.
